i drove across the scene when the accident happened minutes after. I just couldn't believe the tragedy. I kept hoping that the girl was only fainted and seriously wounded. I kept checking the news that night but the news went other way.

NO DRUNK DRIVING!!! BE A RESPONSIBLE DRIVER!!

God bless you all

Thank you all for your prayers... This truly is devastating to the family. She was a only child looking forward to her senior year and a full life ahead of her. Her mom was always their for her and with her..and in a blink of an eye god came for her.

We Only Wanted You

They say memories are golden
and maybe that is true
But we never asked for memories
We only wanted you

A million time we needed you
a million times we'll cry
If love alone could have saved you
You would have never died.

In life we loved you dearly
and in death we love you still
In our hearts you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could billed a stairway
and heartache make a lane
We'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same
But as GOD calls us one by one
Our chain will link again.

My deepest condolences Sandra may god be with you
and the family.

Unfortunately things end up this way. Sometimes when you're having a good time with friends you don't stop to think the consequences a few drinks can bring. The guy that was driving doesn't look like a bad kid, being irresponsible doesn't make him a bad person. It can happen to anyone, adults and teenagers. Unfortunately Teenagers are more vulnerable because they don't have the capacity to rethink what they are going to do.
People just stop and think a little!! Look what happened here. Haven't you stopped and think how many lives this tragedy has changed?
To the family of Frances....May God give you resignation and peace. She's in a better place now and she will be looking down from Heaven.
PLEASE.....IF YOU SEE YOUR FRIENDS DRINKING, DON'T GET IN THE CAR WITH THEM. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS OF GETTING HOME. IF YOU GET IN A CAR WITH SOMEONE THAT HAS BEEN DRINKING, CHANCES ARE YOU WILL NEVER GET HOME.
!! PEOPLE THINK !!

Where are these underage children getting their liquor? On the same weekend a 19 y.o. Kim took out the power in much of Norwalk when he hit a power pole, he fortunately survived.

Dry up the liquor source - it is easier than mopping up the blood. Proscecute the providers.

Frances, we grew up together since we were just little smacks like 5 or 6. with my dad and your tia being together, well we always spent time together. you didnt have any siblings, so you always took us in like we were your own family. from the time you were just a little gurl i always knew you would grow to be a beautiful young woman. i remember how you, me, stevie, brian and francine would always hang out like we always did at the house, haha and the little ones follwing us around. yea those were some good times. you were always in a good mood, shy sometimes, but still sweet. its the good memories that keep me going now. im still in shock with this and i just cant accept it. you were such a good girl. im going to miss you for a while. your going to be greatly missed. we all love you and look foward to seeing you again.

your cousin, Matthew
